We would like to buy a new Dell server with an OEM Windows 2008 Standard and would love to use to use the 64 bit version, but still have a few old applications that only run under 32 bit. Is it possible to buy the server with a 32 bit Windows 2008 now and use the same product key to install the 64 bit version of Windows 2008, once we have eliminated the old software? In other words, we don't want to buy the Windows 2008 license a second time just to switch from 32 to 64 bit. Is this possible?
Thanks a lot,
